Similar species to Spotted Joe Pye in growth and requirements, but Sweet Joe Pye is tolerant of shade. Pink blooms emerge later in fall on top of seven-foot stems. Vanilla-scented flowers attract Monarchs, Swallowtails, and other butterflies. Height and spread make this plant perfect for a border or the back of a garden. Prefers medium to moist loam soil but is more particular about moisture than soil type.
